Question
I have what I believe to be an engraving or sketch signed by Emanuel Oberhausen.  I would like to know the title of this piece and possible an estimate on it's worth and any other information that you can provide.  I have seen several other pieces of Oberhausen' art but I have never cme across this one.  I will try to attach a picture to this.
Thank you.

Sue Schultz

Answer
Sue--I am not familiar with the artist, and he does not appear in any auction records to which I subscribe.  If it is an engraving [or etching], there might be a plate indentation around the image, and the image itself would be "rough."  A sketch would not be.  Good luck.  Alan.

Expertise

I can provide sound advice on buying, collecting & understanding fine art, especially original works by 20th century masters and leading contemporary artists. I can also explain techniques used to create original works and offer tips on how to tell whether or not a piece is an original work of art.

Experience

I have been active in the art world for twenty-seven years. I owned and operated four galleries and a wholesale showroom on both coasts. We specialized in original works by 20th century masters and emerging artists. I have been an art consultant, artist's representative, lecturer, auctioneer, and curator. I had a radio show for two years, "Today's Art World with Alan Klevit" [Washington, D.C.]; hosted two television shows on the arts for six years [Los Angeles Area]; have written for numerous local papers and international art magazines; and currently write a syndicated column, "The Art Beat." I conduct art auctions for charities throughout the United States, and am a frequent speaker/auctioneer on upscale cruise ships, and at civic organizations and local television shows.
